The original recipe came from the April 1992 issue of the Yankee Magazine under the article 'Breakfasts to Crow About.' Inn keepers said that returning guests always asked for it. I surely understand why! This is one that will wow your overnite guests. When I first read this recipe I immediately began to chew on the contents, if you know what I mean! I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do whenever I make it. This would be excellent for an Easter Brunch! And it is so quick and oh, so easy even for a new bride! Note, I tweeked the recipe a wee bit and I sometimes add a dash of Saigon cinnamon for a little kick!
